Could it be that the lady is me
In the photograph
I'm afraid 'cause it feels too good
And I want it too bad
It's just not true
Couldn't ask for anyone more than you

Because you look at me
As though I'm beautiful
Could it be that you want me
I never dreamed someone like you
Could want someone like me

I'm not sure but the more that it's real
The more that it's right, oh what a night
It's as though we've been lovers
All of our lives
There must be a God
Could it be that he's heard me at last

Because you look at me
As though I'm beautiful
Could it be that lady in me
I never dreamed someone like you
Could want someone like me

All the pain and the pleasure's the same
It goes so fast
I'm the girl with the strawberry hair
In the photograph
So come on, let's dance
Let me have it while I have the chance

'Cause there's another world
Where there are other girls
But tonight there's only me
I never dreamed someone like you
Could love someone like me.
